[Amazon.ca] Lexar & Patriot 512Gb MicroSDXC for under $100
- Deal Link:

These prices are probably driven by the increasing availability of SanDisk's 1Tb MicroSD- still crazy at over $450 each. But 512Gb in MicroSD is dropping prices fast.
Not sure if they are competing, but both these brands have been fluctuating up and down between $83-99 each over the last couple weeks; Lexar is down to $83 now, Patriot was $90 last week now back up to $99- which is still a good price at this size. These are V30 speeds, so not bleeding-edge, but good enough for most phones, midrange cameras or a game console. Lexar and Patriot are both well-known flash and RAM brands, so should be legit. I've already sourced a few and they came up good in testing.
EDIT: The cards are rated the same speed-wise in all aspects, same Class, same Video speed rating - except the marketing-hype Apple rating 'Application Performance Class'. The Patriot cards are rated A1, the Lexar cards are rated A2. So nominally the Lexar cards may be slightly faster in some environments.
